with a september 11, murder of four americans in benghazi. susan rice yesterday withdrew her name from consideration to be secretary of state. the move comes after weeks of criticism over comments that she made regarding the attack in benghazi, and an interview with brian williams, ambassador rice was asked if she was blameless for the controversy. >> i don't think that anybody is ever wholly blameless. but i didn't do anything wrong. i didn't mislead. i did not misrepresent. i did the best with the information that the united states government had at the time. lou: here is what ambassador rice did say. on september 16, only five days after benghazi meant to the best information and best assessment we have today, is that, in fact, this was not a pre-planned or premeditated attack. that would have been initially was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo, egypt. as a consequence of the video. >> as she said, no one has been blameless. joining us now is the fox news middle east analyst. it is great to have you with us. what is your reaction first to her claim that sh
said on several sunday morning tv shows about benghazi, the attack in libya that ended up costing the lives of four americans. but by the time that whole thing played out, it was pretty clear that she was reading talking points that were put together by the intelligence community. she had very little, if nothing to do with embassy security itself. she happened to be on those shows themselves because secretary clinton had just come back from a trip and said she was too tired to go on them. there was more under way here though. part of it was a little bit of her style, which was very confrontational one and that probably didn't serve her all that well when she went up to capitol hill a few weeks ago and tried to talk this out between senator john mccain, lindsey graham, others who had opposed her. little bit of it was the white house i think after president obama came out very strongly in her support. she was afterall one of the first people to sign on to his foreign policy team when he was a pretyim probable candidate. after that, the white house did not come out in sort of a full-
